Most normal people have grown weary of the pandemic panic routine promulgated by the national socialist media. We’ve heard about it day after day for months now – except for the first two weeks of June, during the peacefully violent BLM riots. Just about everyone is sick of hearing about it and we want to get on with our lives.
Unfortunately, the left and the national socialist media [but we repeat ourselves] don’t want to let it go. They continue to do what they can to keep the pandemic panic, publishing their incessant ‘grim milestone’ stories whenever they can or random reaction stories.
Even now, the data indicates the country is heading towards herd immunity with a decline in cases across the board. But you wouldn’t know that from the hysteria on mask usage that has grown to epic proportions. The Daily wire reports that the University Of Georgia Says Students Should ‘Consider Wearing A Mask During Sex’. A Metro Nashville Council Member wants People Not Wearing a Mask to Be Charged with Murder or Attempted Murder.
The data clearly shows that the surge began after the peaceful violence of the Black Lives Matter riots. We’ve also shown that the national socialist media is trying to mask this obvious connection.
The media has come down with a case of collective amnesia when it comes to the role of the Black Lives Matter riots in the recent COVID surge. They are conveniently forgetting their wall-to-wall coverage of the rioting during the first two weeks of June as well a hiding the ongoing strife excerpt when they use it to attack President Trump.
For the nation’s socialist left, masks have become the miracle cure for COVID. These are the top reasons they obsess over this placebo scam.
We must acknowledge that there are indeed those who have succumbed to the hype. This being somewhat understandable given the role the media has played, instilling fear week after week and month after month. Certain types of masks can afford protection to the wearer in specific cases and their use is understandable.
4. Virtue signaling
Conversely, some merely want to signal to the rest of the world that they care more than anyone else. Masks have become a political symbol rather than an actual protective measure.
It’s not often that one can display their virtues so prominently in public. T-shirts with mass murderer Che Guevara are a far cry from a message displayed on one’s face, not to mention the opportunity to double-down with a political message.
3. Maintaining pandemic panic/subjugation
Let’s face it, most everyone is sick of the COVID crisis. The previously mentioned fear can only be maintained for a short time for most people. Then people get used to the threat and they want to just get on with their lives.
Face masks are a perfect opportunity to provide a constant reminder that things aren’t normal, that a dire threat still exists. Normal people are tired of the useless lockdowns and social distancing and those are falling by the wayside, primarily because of enforcement difficulties. Masks are different; those can at least be enforced with draconian rules.
Leftists love control more than liberty. They live to be able to tell people what to do no matter the circumstance. It doesn’t matter whether their orders make sense or not. They like the latter since those show their power more than logical edicts.
It doesn’t matter to them that masks are useless, to the point of being detrimental. They are very careful with the language in how they advocate forcing people to wear masks. Instead of saying they will protect people, they say they will ‘help’ slow the spread. That kind of logic could be applied to anything. Driving 5 MPH on the interstate could ‘help’ avoid accidents, but it doesn’t make any sense either.
They enjoy forcing people to submit to nonsensical edicts. It demonstrates their power and sets people up for other types of control over their lives.
2. Identity concealment
The “peaceful” looting and rioting stemming from the Black Lives Matter demonstrations went against every disease mitigation measure everyone else has been following. From breaking ‘quarantine’, gathering in large groups to failing to social distance, save one thing: Wearing a mask.
This placebo measure is also perfect when looting a store or setting fire to law enforcement vehicles and buildings. It just happens to be a way to ‘help’ stop the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The protesters were clearly not staying at home or social distancing, but they were wearing masks – at least some of the time. It’s just a happy accident for the left that this tool of disease mitigation helps keep them out of prison, assuming that they would be prosecuted in the first place.
Consider the data from the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center (CRC) specifically the timeline of COVID-19 policies in each state. These are compilations of the data on new cases and new deaths overlaid with data on disease mitigation measures in each state. These vary from state to state but in general, these were the disease mitigation measure for this initial period:
- Stay at home orders/lockdowns
- Social distancing
- Contact tracing
- Limiting group gatherings
1. An excuse for the peaceful violence of the Black Lives Matter riots
Most of the states began reopening towards the end of April and the first weeks of May adding certain measures to those already in place:
- Temperature checks
- Screening questions of customers
Some were wearing masks, but at the time the experts discouraged the practice. Most states maintained steady trends for the few weeks after they opened back up, some had decreases, a few had small increases.
Oddly enough, like the national socialist media, these timelines fail to mention one of the biggest news stories of the year – the peaceful violence of the Black Lives Matter riots. These effectively started the first weekend after the death of George Floyd – on or about June 1, 2020.
The data shows a marked increase in new cases a week or so after the riots began in June. It was at this point that the experts suddenly changed their minds about the science and face masks became the miracle cure for COVID.
It should be easy to see why this was the case. The gatherings of thousands in cities across the nation and around the world went against all of the disease mitigation protocols. The massive demonstrations violated the lockdown/stay at home orders as well as everything else except for mask usage.
The bottom line: Masks are nothing but an excuse for the BLM riots
It should be obvious by now that the Black Lives Matter riots had a primary role in the COVID surge that took place in the last weeks of June and the beginning of July. If we had an objective national media, the convergence of these two stories would have been a major news event. But that would have subjected the media to usual false charges of racism.
Face masks give the left a thinly veiled excuse to distract away from this role. The usual defense – aside from trying to avoid the subject altogether is to – asserts that most of the protesters were wearing masks. The continued obsession with this placebo measure maintains this excuse. Never mind that they certainly weren’t staying at home, avoiding large groups, social distancing and practicing personal hygiene.
Rest assured that the downward trend in new cases will be attributed to mask usage.The rising mantra will be that we will have to keep wearing them, lest we have another surge.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
